Check out our 5.18 PBE megathread for more on this upcoming skin.

World Championship Emblems

A set of World Championship "emblems" have been added in today's update. There is one for each of the 12 currently qualified teams and a few extras. These will display in-game on a fancy plaque with the team logo on it.

While they are not accessible in-game yet and no details are available, they seem to be tied to the new world championship summoner icons.

Here's a few examples to hold you over until they are enabled:

Balance Changes

* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.

  • Base HP lowered to 518 from 552.76
  • Base Armor increased to 23 from 19.2
  • Pix, Faerie Companion (Passive) can now trigger Tribute (Spellthief line passive) once per lulu basic attack**

  • Harvesters of Sorrow (W) max number of units drained reduced to 2 from 3
    • [Remember: Mordekaiser has several other W changes on the PBE atm, including being able to self cast, damage changes, a new health cost, and more.]
  • Mana per level increased to 63 from 50.

  • Baleful Strike (Q) now gives AP on champion kills AND assists instead of only champion kills.
  • Dark Matter (W) [now starts at beginning of cast time instead of at end**]
  • [NOTE: Video of this change on live vs pbe can be found here. Try slowing it down if you are having trouble seeing the change. The 1.2 second delay and vfx now start  before the cast time rather than after.]

Enchantment: Warrior
  • AD increased to 45 from 40
